About the job

We’re looking for a Creative Strategist to join our strategy team to deliver on projects that span insight, brand, experience and design for the world’s biggest brands.

The ideal candidate is someone who’s great at bridging the gap between strategic thinking and design doing — someone who enjoys both figuring out what to do and how to do it.

Ideally you

  • Have a thirst for knowledge
  • Have a passion for current trends and contemporary culture
  • Are great at simplifying, structuring and explaining
  • Are collaborative, influential and love working hand in hand with other creative disciplines
  • Have a sharp eye for evaluating creative work
  • Have strong written skills and are a confident and concise presenter
  • Can explain design to non-designers

Your typical day might include

  • Discovering trends and insights that inspire and provoke
  • Defining brand and design strategy for global brands and products
  • Identifying own-able creative territories and crafting the narratives that bring them to life
  • Developing propositions, principles and creative positioning for brands
  • Building clear structures and frameworks to help inspire and guide brand and design work
  • Be a part of setting up and facilitating collaborative workshops
  • Delivering presentations that inspire, convince and compel

This role requires

  • Relevant experience in a creative or strategic discipline
  • Experience gained in a fast-paced creative agency
  • Experience contributing creatively to multiple projects
  • Experience of working directly with clients
  • Knowledge of 2D design software (Adobe, Keynote, etc.)

Who we are

We’re forpeople, an independent creative agency, working globally from an old pickle factory in London and a former theatre in Amsterdam. Our team of over 100 weaves together a diverse range of skills: from graphic, product, spatial and interaction design to moving image, writing, research and strategy.

Without knowing it, you’ve probably seen or experienced something we’ve had a hand in. Over the last 15 years, we’ve quietly shaped the future of some of the world’s most well-known brands as well as creating others you’ll soon get to discover. Our work is wide-reaching, from defining brand visions to building identities and designing experiences. Yet everything we do is born from a simple philosophy – we feel, think and do for people.

What we offer

People mean the world to us. That includes looking after our own, with things like:

  • Global clients and world-class work
  • A competitive salary
  • A strong benefits package, reflecting both company and personal performance
  • Training, support and personal career development
  • A generous company pension
  • A unique, inspiring working environment filled with incredible, like-minded people
